Alumni Association receives generous donation from Doolittle's



Arnie and Brad Jennings, owners of AJ's Doolittle's in Lambertville recently presented Chuck Faller, president, and Laura Collins, treasurer, of the Bedford Alumni Association a check for $500. Doolittle's held a fundraising event on November 18 where they offered customers some outstanding specials and then donated a percentage of their profits to the Alumni Association. "They also had some 50/50 drawings on different nights," Collins said. Money donated to the

Alumni Association from the fundraiser will be used to help Alumni Association receives generous donation from Doolittle's pay down the debt owed on the Bedford Community Stadium.


According to Collins, over the years their $1 million dollar loan has been reduced to $280,000. No tax dollars were used to fund the construction of the stadium. "Arnie and Brad Jennings reached out to help the Alumni Association," Faller said. They contacted me through a friend and told me that they would really like to help us get the stadium paid for. We put our heads together on the fundraiser and it was a win/win for both the Association and for Doolittle's."  "The Alumni Association is very grateful to Arnie and Brad for helping in our endeavor to pay the football stadium off," Collins said.

Faller said, "Most people and businesses have been great about working with us when we ask, but this is the first time

that someone approached us and said, ‘how can we help.' " He added, "When everyone works together great things can happen and I am really grateful to Doolittle's for their willingness to get on board with the Alumni Association."


Be sure to watch for future Alumni Association advertising. Faller said that another fundraiser/ party is planned for mid to late February and for those who participate it will be a great time and awesome value!
